Hard drive is great for server use

Troy Chollar, Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: Hard drive is great for server use, but watch carefully when ordering from multiple places, the same drive "RE-4 2 TB..." comes in several variations, not all compatible with each other for raid.

Solid Workhorses

DCrane, Amazon

  • Summary: I have about 100 of these drives alongside around 700 other drives in use for my business. These are solid drives that just go and go. All issues that have cropped up have been the fault of overly narrow focused, assumption laden hardware RAID controllers. This is quickly worked around by just switching to HBA's and software RAID, which in combination with these drives has proven much more versatile.

For use in NAS

digitrade, Amazon
30 November 2012
  • Summary: We have 16 of these drives in a Promise VessRaid. It was put into service in October. One drive failed within the first month. No other failures to report for the first five months. The drives are very quiet and cool as you would expect. And fast enough for our storage needs. We use them in Raid 6 configurations. We were skeptical. At $240 per drive it is a big investment.

Ahh Storage

Amazon Customer "Mackdady", Amazon
24 October 2012
  • Summary: Love these green drives they are 'only' 5400 RPM's however with the large cache you dont notice except when the power bill comes, as they dont show up on it like the 7200 drives do. I have had not issues with longevity which also seems to be a perk with the 5400 drives they last longer than the 7200+ drives Imagine that!

problems but I don't know what the cause is!

Augie, Amazon
14 August 2012
  • Summary: I like the 3.5" drive over the 2.5" drive, bigger has more room to lose the heat. Like a bigger watt light ie(200w vs 50w) bulb is bigger for the same reason, the element fits the smaller bulb. Problem- harddrive-hd sitting in a dock, connected to a directv. To record movies. Connected by esata cable. Twice I had to cycle power to the dock to view (select a movie ) I could see the list but when selected screen went black & dock light did Not blink.
